PUTRAJAYA — Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah yesterday held the 30th pre-Cabinet weekly audience with Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, which Istana Negara described as “most meaningful”.
Comptroller of the Royal Household for Istana Negara, Datuk Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin, said in a statement that the audience, at Istana Melawati here, took place for 45 minutes from 8 am.
“The audience was most meaningful because it was the 30th pre-Cabinet meeting with the Prime Minister since Al-Sultan Abdullah was elected as the 16th Yang di-Pertuan Agong in January this year. This shows that Al-Sultan Abdullah is not only very concerned about the administration of the country, His Majesty also takes seriously the welfare of his subjects. Al-Sultan Abdullah is also very meticulous, His Majesty always scrutinises at length Cabinet notes and memorandums as well as reports a day before the pre-Cabinet meetings,” he said.
